Well, it's been a busy week. The days are flying by and I wish I had more productive hours to utilize. I find the older I get, the faster time seems to fly. The more goals in life I'm trying to hit, the faster the arms of the clock are moving. I wonder if time seems to slow down when you retire, and then speeds up again, as you get older? I guess only time will tell.

Adult acne is not okay. I wish I could have dealt with that as a teen and moved on. But no, clear skin, and then BAM! It's bothering me so much that I now wear cover-up when I go out. I feel that people will stare at my many imperfections. Maybe they will, maybe they won't but when it's affecting my self-esteem, that is an issue. I know what I would like to do (blue light laser) but with the cost, that is not happening any time soon. I've tried dozens of cleansing methods and none of them have worked. So I'm doing the elimination diet, again. This may be round number 3 or 4 in the last 7 or 8 years. It will be dairy.

I'm on day 2 or is it 3 of having no dairy. No cream, milk, my precious Greek yogurt or cheese. These are important sources of protein, not so much the cheese, for me. But I'll have to get protein in other ways. More meat, I guess. Quinoa, which I love. Spinach, various greens, which I eat a lot of now. Dairy free, protein powder. That is going to be a hard one, because most of them are disgusting and have too many artificial ingredients for my liking. Anyway, I'm giving the dairy elimination a try for a month (I'll do my best). I may post before and afters, to share the difference. I'm not sure yet. Although I think I did post acne pictures before, somewhere on this blog.

Anyway, I have a busy day, so I'm off. Have a great Friday & weekend!

Can you believe that half of 2012 is almost over? That summer is technically almost here? June 20th/21st depending on your time zone.

The older I become, time seems to just fly by. Remember when you were a kid and the summer holiday seemed to drag on and on? Especially if you had nothing to do. Except of course for that last week before school began. That week flew by.

Now, the whole year seems to fly by. It seems as though you can't catch your breath some days. I have no idea why, but I'd like to find out. Anyone know if there's an actual scientific cause?

Today and this weekend is going to be rainy & cool, but not cold (in my neck of the woods). I can handle that. Much better than rainy and hot, because of course that makes the place as humid as a swamp. The earth is so dry that we need these long stretches of rain. The trees are starting to suffer.

Have a good Friday & a fabulous weekend!
